Revenge of the Titans [Steam store page]
A tower defence game that keeps you on your toes. There are tons of upgrades and not enough time to buy all of them - you definitely won't get through all the levels on the first try.

A decent puzzle flying platformer - the pod has no propulsion so you must use cannons, bouncing, etc to navigate the map. The controls do take a bit of getting used to - especially when bouncing - that's my only complaint

Touted as good hand-to-hand combat, I was rather disappointed with this game. The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay had far superior melee fighting - Zeno suffers from AI that can hit you from further away, throw things at you, and takes a lot of hits to kill. Frustrating

The graphics are dated about 10 years, and it didn't support my resolution. Gameplay wise it uses lots of quick key combos and has fairly difficult AI - like a 3D Street Fighter II - not my cup of tea, but some may enjoy it.

I'm on the fence about this game - the abilities are interesting, but execution of certain moves like jumping is difficult. I think this would be more fun as a puzzle game without the enemies, since the sluggish movement makes it difficult get away

The controls on this underwater side-scroller are decent, though I wish there was a way to bind songs to a hotkey. A way to quick-save instead of save points within the game would be nice as well.

Penumbra Overture [Steam store page]
The story seems okay, but the motion controls are atrocious - there's a reason normal games don't have you move your mouse to turn cranks or use a hammer. It made it very difficult to defend yourself against enemies (and enemies can break down doors)

Machinarium [Steam store page]
Nicely drawn point and click - but the puzzles are too obtuse for their own good. The hint button is hidden behind a long minigame with a key that shoots bullets (which the game doesn't mention and the minigame can't be completed without them)

Similar to Flow, but frustrating since you give up part of yourself to move - rather than being able to steer naturally. Later levels are mostly luck - the first 30 seconds determining whether you have any chance of completing the level

This is a fun but easy Diablo style dungeon crawler. It features quick travel via portals and spells, as well as a pet to sell items while you continue killing. Additionally there is a shared chest to transfer valuable items between characters

World of Goo [Steam store page]
I'm not madly in love with this game, but it's a decent way to pass the time. The puzzles are usually fairly easy, though sometimes it is hard to execute them because of the way the AI makes goo run around the structure
